In the cover story about Star Trek: Discovery that was published in the August 4, 2017, issue of Entertainment Weekly, journalist James Hibberd recounted a moment on the set when Jason Isaacs (playing Captain Gabriel Lorca) ad-libbed the phrase "for God's sakes!" as a new ending to a line. Kirsten Beyer, who wrote the episode, explained to Isaacs that he couldn't insert "for God's sakes" into his dialogue because one of the rules that Gene Roddenberry set for the universe he created states that in his vision of the future in which all "Star Trek" media is set, religion--and therefore all conceptions of "God"--no longer exist. Isaac's sarcastic retort to Beyer was, "how about 'for fuck's sake'? Can I say that?" And Beyer's response was, "You can say that before you can say 'God.'" However, in the 2009 Star Trek reboot, Karl Urban (as Dr. Leonard "Bones" McCoy), expresses his frustration by swearing, "good God, man!" and "my God, man!" It also does not explain the twist at the end of the original series show titled "Bread and Circuses". See more
